Our multidisciplinary approach and evidence-based medical protocols help each patient reach their maximum potential. Patients receive 24-hour physician support and individualized care from medical experts in a variety of disciplines:
Specialized High-Observation Care
Our facility includes a high observation unit, and our nurse-to-patient ratio ranges from 1-to-2 to 1-to-4, depending on patient needs. This allows us to provide multiple trauma post-surgical care, complex burn post-surgical care, dialysis, conscious sedation, telemetry and bedside monitor observation and other services to meet our patients’ complex medical needs. We also have skilled respiratory therapists who provide dedicated pulmonary care, and our nurses are trained to provide dedicated cardiac care.
Our specialized services help patients wean from mechanical ventilation, which is crucial to good outcomes. It lowers chances of infection and muscle dystrophy, helping patients avoid setbacks and progress to the next level of care.
Our respiratory therapists provide tracheotomy care, and our 1-to-4 therapist to ventilator ratio allows more time at the bedside than traditional weaning methods.
We also encourage early mobility through physical therapy. Our nursing team supports early mobility with sedation vacations as needed to help patients comfortably take part in therapy.
Our Wound Care Certified Nurses provide treatment to heal all levels of skin compromise, thereby also preventing patients from acquiring hospital-acquired pressure ulcers. Regional One Health is home to a renowned burn center and wound care center, and our team works closely with these specialists to provide comprehensive resources for patients with burns and other severe wounds.
By implementing proper wound care plans, identifying which surface is best for each patient and educating patients and caregivers, our team has an excellent track record for wound recovery and prevention. Proper nutrition is also key to wound care, so our staff includes a dedicated dietician to provide each patient with a meal plan tailored to their medical needs.
Our therapy team consists of Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech-Language Pathologists who work together to evaluate and treat impairments in patients’ ability to move, speak, eat, walk and dress themselves. Our Speech-Language Pathologists are certified in performing Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluations of Swallowing (FEES) which can be performed at the bedside in medically complex patients.
Disorders of Consciousness Program
Most of our therapists are certified by the Brain Injury Association of America. Our Disorders of Consciousness program is a formalized program that provides specialty care for patients who are in low-level states of consciousness as a result of a traumatic brain injury. Studies have shown that early specialized intervention provided to patients with traumatic brain injuries results in improved outcomes in cognition and motor function. Our Disorders of Consciousness program utilizes evidenced based treatment protocols and medications to help maximize patients’ awareness and cognitive recovery.
